CCD Family Faith Formation

The Mission of Family Faith Formation

Our mission is to instill in our families a deeper union with Christ through encouraging regular attendance at Mass and reception of the Sacraments.

Commitment of Parent and Child

Parents and families are involved in the learning process, empowered to be their child’s primary educator through life: in the Catholic faith, in school, and in the world.  The family is the child’s first community of grace and prayer, and each child’s first school of Christian values,  virtues, including charity.

“Teach a child to choose the right path and when he is older
he will remain upon it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6
